Leicester’s Showcase Cinema de Lux is set to bring some seasonal magic to the city with a showing of Christmas blockbuster Home Alone.
The Highcross cinema will be showing the film, starring Macaulay Culkin, for one day only – Sunday, October 25.
Home Alone first hit the big screen in 1990 and stars a young Macaulay Culkin in the lead role as eight year-old Kevin MacCallister who is mistakenly left at home alone whilst his mum, dad and family head out of town on holiday.
Kevin has to protect the family home from con men (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) who plan on robbing the MacCallister residence.
Talking about the screening of the Christmas blockbuster, Mark Barlow, general manager of Showcase Cinemas UK said: “This year has been tough on everyone and, with Christmas looking to be very different for 2020, we wanted to invite film fans to start the season earlier than ever before and join us for some much needed festive fun.
“We’re thrilled to be able to show Home Alone as every year it has consistently tops the polls as the nation’s favourite Christmas movie. So, we couldn’t think of a better film to bring to the big screen in Leicester”.
As well as enjoying Home Alone on the big screen, cinema-goers will be given an extra festive treat with a free bag of chocolate to enjoy during the film, included in the ticket price.
